LAMA Memo Series

TIP Last Update: JeffMangum - 15 June 2009

The following is a copy of the original LAMA Memo web page maintained by Larry D'Addario which was located at (and copied to I have edited-out some of the now irrelevant stuff about submitting LAMA memos, for example.

This series of memos is intended to provide a forum for ideas, results, and discussions related to the technology of millimeter- and submillimeter-wavelength telescopes, including existing instruments and new or proposed instruments such as ALMA. It should be noted that most existing instruments already have their own memo series for specialized reports, and that the ALMA project has a memo series that has recently become supervised and where the content of new memos has become subject to restrictions. Readers of LAMA Memos should understand that none of them have been reviewed, so that the content of each is the sole responsibility of its author(s). Opinions expressed are not necessarily those of the NRAO nor of AUI nor of any other organization.

To some extent, this series may be regarded as a continuation of the NRAO's MMA Memos, started in 1982 and originally concerned with the Millimeter Array Project that preceded ALMA. That series had its name changed to "ALMA Memos" after #268, and it remained an unreviewed and unrestricted series up to and including #458.

The title "LAMA" has no special meaning except to provide a distinction between this series and others.
